The area around Guilin and Yangshou in Guanxi Province is known for possessing some of China’s most potent scenery. Amidst fairy-tale karst limestone landscapes, Miao, Yao and Zhuang ethnic groups grow rice, sweet potatoes and other vegetable and tea. On this journey guests will be able to immerse themselves in the glorious surroundings while finding out more about traditional heritage and culture.
One of the most fascinating cultural happenings in the area is the advent of Miao New Year. A very lively affair, the festival involves lots of feasting and drinking as well as several ceremonies to honour ancestors. Other regular features of the celebrations include traditional music played on drums, gongs and lusheng – a type of pipe instrument. In addition to encounters with the people of the area, guests can explore the magical landscapes, climbing the peaks or having a lazy paddle through the scenery in a kayak.
